No.   However,  such a power lowering would be reported to the FCC after 10 
days. And even then, no action would be allowed to be taken for quite a 
significant time afterwards.     -     On the 7 PM sign-off.... since JTO is 
a 'daytimer',  and since the rules say that I must broadcast 2/3 of the time 
licensed [time = sunrise to sunset], I could legally sign off at about 4 PM 
even in the summer., and 2 PM in the winter, if I was signing on at 
sunrise.).   -    Ever notice a couple years ago, WNTN signed off at 3:30 
PM... all legal.
